While the Bighorns certainly have some beauty. They really don't remotely compare to points further west. I enjoyed our drive thru the Bighorns, but I found their attractions to be poorly marked and rather ordinary. The medicine wheel place is interesting historically, but with the...More

It is a beautiful park with a diverse countryside. It is truly a hidden gem. It was so much more than we expected with the canyons and trails. It is definitely worth your time.

Beautiful drive over the Medicine Wheel Scenic Passage, including Mirror Lake. Not to be missed, loved it!

The drive through the Bighorn Canyon was an extremely scenic drive and an ideal scenic byway between Keystone & Sheridan

We were amazed at the scenery changes. Grassy meadows, sharp rocky cliffs, trees. Beautiful. We drove the 16-14 loop and the 14A. Saw moose, mule deer, coyote, white tail deer, antelope and cowboys on horses rounding up cattle!

What a spectacular place. Bring your best hiking gear, and camp if you can! We hiked for three days, discovering wonderful lakes (:ale Helen, Mirror Lake, Lost Twin Lakes were the favorites), seeing many moose, and loving the place... Campgrounds are fantastic, even the pit...More

It totally depends on how much time you have- there are hour hikes or several day hikes; you can drive the forest roads or stay on the main highway. Atv trails can go for days and still not use the same road twice. North... More
